A Canadian survivor of Auschwitz

book cover image: by chance alone

Max Eisen is a Canadian survivor of Auschwitz. In his recent book By chance alone : a remarkable true story of courage and survival at Auschwitz this amazing man tells of his personal experience and survival of Auschwitz. Beaten by an SS guard he was surprisingly sent to a nearby hospital where his life was literally saved from the gas chambers of Auschwitz by a polish political prisoner working as a surgeon at the hospital. Eisen immigrated to Canada in 1949 and has dedicated the last twenty-two years of his life to educating others across Canada and around the world about Auschwitz-Birkenau.  His story is a testament to the human will to survive, and not just survive, but to rise above your past to share with others your incredible journey.  His story is well worth your time to read.
